Dante Now: Current Trends in Dante Studies (1995)
Edited by Theodore J. Cachey Jr.
The William and Katherine Devers Series in Dante and Medieval Italian Literature, Volume 1
Written by ten distinguished Dante scholars, the essays in Dante Now represent the most significant areas of contemporary Dantes studies.
This collection, originating from a 1993 University of Notre Dame conference, includes some of the newest and most exciting work in contemporary Dantes studies and focuses in particular on three intensely cultivated areas: poetics, "minor works", and reception.
